Veteran actor Dilip Kumar's health is improving at the intensive care unit of a hospital here for treatment of pneumonia, said a family friend. The 95-year-old actor was on Wednesday admitted to the Lilavati Hospital and Research Centre, Bandra, after he felt uneasy due to chest infection. The treatment is on for a patch of pneumonia.
"He is in ICU and his condition is improving. Antibiotics are being given intravenously," Udaya Tara Nayar, compiler of Dilip Kumar's autobiography, said. His wife and actress Saira Banu has been by his side.
Earlier while speaking about his health, Saira Banu had said to Zee News that his congestion has been improved with strong medication but he has to improve more for a good recovery. "Yes please do pray. His congestion is a bit improved with strong medication and we have to yet improve much more for a good recovery In Shaa Allah. Thank you for the good wishes," she was quoted saying.
One of India's most iconic actors, Dilip Kumar has appeared in some classics like Kohinoor, Mughal-e-Azam, Shakti, Naya Daur and Ram Aur Shyam. He was last seen on the silver screen in 1998 in Qila.
